Nose
Effusive. Young and vibrant. Plenty of allspice and even a little sultana, toasty oak,cypress,coffee bean and rye flour. Dry.
Palate
Immediate impact.Zaps into the mouth with a major hit of ginger, cinnamon and coriander seed. Golden syrup like sweetness sits underneath. Good retro-nasal menthol note.
Finish
Hot,tingling and very long-lasting. Dries well.
Comment
A classic rye. Bartenders, this is what you need.

Nose
A firm and mildly fruity nose with bags of spice,a little cinnamon and raison. Some wood comes through as well.
Palate
The rye hits fast and hard bringing wonderful almost eastern spices. There is an underpinning of sweetness as well.
Finish
Warming and dry.
Comment
One to try with Eastern food, am sure it shows promise.
